MEMBERSHIP & GOAL:
Members of the Outdoor Club of South Jersey can select a walking/running mileage goal of 500 or 750 miles for the calendar year. Reaching your annual goal is based on mileage you complete during months you are a member of the mileage club.
Walk (or run) on club hikes, around your neighborhood, at the mall, or on a treadmill. The only requirement is that to count mileage for any "event" in the day - you must accumulate at least 1 consecutive mile for that event. There is no limit to how many "events" one might have in a day. Consecutive mile means you can’t walk a half mile in the morning and a half mile in the evening and count 1 mile for your total for that day - but you can hike 1 mile in the morning and 1 in the evening for 2 total miles for that day.
REPORTING MILES: Keep track of your miles for the month - and email your month's total miles to Valerie by the 5th of each month. Valerie keeps a spreadsheet of everyone's miles - and emails the result to club members around the 6th of the month. If you miss sending in your miles by the 5th – email them to Valerie as soon as possible.
AWARDS PATCH: Those reaching their goal by the end of the year - receive a patch at our awards gathering held early the following year. The patch depicts a hiker and reads
"MEMBER 500+ Mile Club 500+ Miles in 20__ Outdoor Club of South Jersey ".
The year is handwritten on your patch.
